Oral Roberts

As many of you know Oral Roberts passed away this week. There is not too much i know about him, except one story about him locking himself in some tower until someone donated millions of dollars because God told him to. (not sure is it is a true story or not) But i came across this excellent reflection by Albert Mohler president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

here is his conclusion
(read the whole thing here: http://www.albertmohler.com/2009/12/16/newsnote-the-death-of-oral-roberts/)

"But the greatest tragedy in all this is the perpetuation of prosperity theology, passed on by Oral Roberts to a new generation. I am thankful for every sinner who came to know the Gospel of Christ through the preaching of Oral Roberts, and I heard him preach about salvation in ways that were true and powerful. But I can only lament the prosperity theology that he leaves in his long shadow."
